From the first minute Dorian was entertaining and informative. His delivery style was engaging and friendly. Some of the stories were very surprising and shocking yet delivered with just the right amount of humour. An excellent way to see bits of York we wouldn’t normally go to. Highly recommended.

Oh Terry, this is enough to bring a tear to a 41 year old Spookologist's eye. Thank you very much for taking the time to review the tour and share your experience.

A spooktacular trip through York’s history. Some chilling stories, except the one about the chocolate orange. Our guide Mr Deathly was a great presenter and had some good jokes.
